Shrewsbury School

OS Rowing - Sabrina

The Sabrina Club is the Old Salopian rowing club

The Club enables members to maintain contact with the RSSBC as linked events are organised throughout the year, most notably at the Schools' Head and at Henley - when a number of Old Salopians gather to support to School.  

This year, Sabrina will be holding its AGM on OS Day, Saturday 6th October, at the Shrewsbury School Boathouse at 4.30pm.  Please click here for the full agenda, as well as the minutes of last year's meeting.  We will also be reviewing the current constitution, with the proposed changes to be seen here.  For the sake of clarity, our rules are also attached for perusal prior to the meeting.  

The Club has also been active in raising funds for building work and new equipment thanks to the generosity of Sabrina members. In recent years this has included significant contributions towards the new rowing tank, construction of the impressive training facilities within the new Yale Boathouse, opened in 2012 adjacent to the 1921 Pugh Boathouse, refurbishment of the Bowring Clubroom in the Pugh Boathouse and purchase of new Empacher eights. In addition to generous donations from members helping to maintain facilities for rowing at Shrewsbury as some of the best in the country, it is now possible to leave a legacy specifically benefiting rowing at Shrewsbury. Further information is available from the Captain Nick Randall or Secretary Rod Spiby.

Salopians who have been members of School Crews, or have attained a high standard of oarsmanship at the School, at their University, or in any rowing club recognised by the Amateur Rowing Association or have been recommended by the Director of Rowing are eligible to join the Club.
